Kelis Vs. PETA: Round Two!

| Filed under: Kelis

wenn1026283kelis.jpg

PETA is calling bullshiz on Kelis!

The singer posted a lengthy entry on her MySpace blog the other day, claiming the organization sent her a nasty-gram for wearing fur, but PETA says it isn't true!

We've gotten a hold of the letter PETA sent to Kelis, and, well… just see for yourself!

Dear Kelis,

I hope that this finds you well. I'm writing today because we've been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from folks alerting us to photos of you wearing a fur hat and coat while out in London over the weekend.

Please know that animals killed for their fur endure immense suffering. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, strangled, genitally electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their pelts. We hope that you'll take a moment to watch an undercover exposé of fur farms, hosted by Eva Mendes, at http://www.peta.org/FeatureEvaMendes.asp.

If you enjoy the look of fur, renowned designers, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood, couple fashion with compassion and use only faux fur in their lines. We hope you found this information helpful and will join countless celebrities, like Charlize Theron, Khloe Kardashian, Nia Long, Kid Sister, Pink, and Michelle Obama, in publicly swearing off fur.

Warm regards,
PETA

Innnnnnnteresting!

Whose side are U on???

    somehow i picture this whole thing as inspiration for the next saw movie. kelis being the victim obviously.



  2. 202

    Many of PETA's tactics are terroristic and their President's a monstrous hypocrite, opposing use of animal-tested medications publicly while using insulin as a diabetic and claiming it's acceptable because it keeps her "working for animals." Please. You mean when it's YOUR @ss, Ingrid, it's a whole other story isn't it? She doesn't even walk her own talk, but they throw things on people with whom they disagree. I think each and every such incident should be prosecuted for assault. And then all the famewhoring celebrities who use their ads as an excuse to get naked in print. Ugh. It's just nasty.



  3. 203

    A well-worded and polite letter from PETA. No reason for her to flip like she did. Guess she doesn't like being made to feel guilty.



  4. 204

    its not cute to were real fur anymore, you just have the word 'killer' plastered on ur back, sooooo not worth the trouble. Nothing wrong with faux fur, most of its cuter anyway



  5. 205

    Re: Kelis = Epic Win – SAY ALL YOU WANT KELIS (OR HER FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND), WE ALL FUCKING HATE THE SELFISH, IGNORAMOUS!!! (OR YOU, KELIS!) NOBODY IS GOING TO FEEL SORRY FOR THE MILKSHAKE SPEWGING BITCH AGAIN, now that we know what heartless, gold-digger she is! I HOPE SHE DOESN'T HAVE PETS, I'D FEEL VERY SORRY FOR THEM!



  6. 206

    FU-CK PETA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  7. 207

    I'm on PETA side … killing animals for fur in times where you can have fake fur that looks good and even fake fur from top designers, is just bad !!! … :/ There is no other side on this problem killing animals for killing is BAD!



  8. 208

    I'm on PETA's side because I'm sure this Rachet ass gold digger is using child supprt money to finance her fur collection.



  9. 209

    im not veggie, but i deffo choose peta, fur is just awful :/



  10. 210

    she is so ghetto! omg lady gaga looks ugly in this video >.



  11. 211

    Re: iluvnj – well clearly you have never been on the peta kills animals website where there is factual evidence fo them killing them.
    BTW…im from ireland so i didnt spell organisation wrong, we spell it with an s not a z so stfu



  12. 212

    Re: 15min – or maybe it would be better to find them animals loving homes or place them in shelters where they can be looked after



  13. 213

    Kelis can wear whatever she friggin wants… but I am more horrified by her makeup and hair color than any dead animal that she is wearing. I am more concerned with the 8 year old child that probably sewed the jacket in a sweatshop than anything else.



  14. 214

    Maybe the dead animals should send the nasty-gram to her. How she can run around in something that's made of so much suffering is beyond me.



  15. 215

    though i agree with peta on the no fur issue i find their way of going about it really over the top. they are so irritating they are now being used as a reason why people DO wear fur. makes you wonder why theyr really doing this? if they know their tactics arent helping the animals they claim they think are so important - are they really just using them as an ego boost and a way to contact celebrities?



  16. 216

    Kelis all the way, I love animals and I do not wear fur as a personal choice. If I were famous and I wanted to wear fur I would not want some self righteous attention grabbers to tell me what to do. No matter how it is worded they have no right to send any letters at all.



  17. 217

    No question what side I'm in… RESPECT FOR THE ANIMALS.



  18. 218

    I think it is a bit wierd that PETA is focusing on one specific person. It comes off like they don't have enough substance to their cause. I agree that it is unecessary to wear fur but on the other hand i wear my leather boots and eat my meat and chicken. I mean should I be scared that PETA will go personally after anybody that doesn't share their views. Strange and unproffy

    219

    I think someone should skin the bitch alive and wear her as a coat. And she looks stupid and trashy in the above pic. Fuck you bitch. Slut



  20. 220

    WE DON'T NEED TO WEAR FUR AT ALL. LEAVE THE POOR ANIMALS ALONE. THOSE WHO BUY FUR ARE UNEDUCATED.



  21. 221

    Team PETA — letter was pleasant, respectful, informative and true!

    Maybe Kelis is just an animal hater.



  22. 222

    i am all for animals..I'm studying veterinary medicine..however, peta is so hypocritical to put that dogs and cats were killed because PETA kills around 97-99% of all their perfectly adoptable dogs and cats because they are for total animal liberation which means they'd rather have dogs and cats be dead then be in a loving home as pets…they are so hypocritical and manipulative and need to shove a sock in it

  23. BD4ME says – reply to this


    223

    You know when a singer/actor starts posting responses to these kinds of things their careers are going down the drain - and in Kelis' case, it's going like a rollercoaster. Kelis is as disposible as PETA is, but at least they had the dignity to send a proper letter (sarcasm or not), which she responded to with an attitude like she's an A-Lister. But at the end the appropriate response would be: WHO THE F*CK CARES ABOUT KELIS ANYWAY? Skin her if she likes it so much…



  24. 224

    Faux fur and the petro-chemicals they're made from kill many more animals in a lot crueler way than the real pelts ever do.

    I'm all for banning cruel and inhuman methods of death, but PETA and all you idiots who support what they're saying are supporting the DEATHS of thousands upon thousands of animals AND humans from poorly maintained oil lines, pollution, and the devastation wreaked by oil spills. These aren't just cruel deaths, but often cruel lives resulting from birth defects, destruction and poisoning of habitats, collapse of entire food chains.

    And I say this as a vegetarian. PETA ARE FUCKING FUCKTARDS - and while Kelis ain't the brightest crayon in the box, I'd still take her side over PETA's anyday.



  25. 225

    FUCK PETA WHY DONT THEY PROTEST FOR REAL SHIT



  26. 226

    Peta kills more animals than anyone. wake up Peta. If you cared about animals sooo damn much stop killing them! hypocrites. Go to www.petakillsanimals.com



  27. 227

    TEAM PETA!!

    kelis is a loser has-been.
    excuse me, i meant loser never-been.

    I"M on PETA side!



  29. 229

    i give PETA my middle finger

    Re: nikki zeeRe: nikki zee – There's actually a pretty good Masters of Horror episode about fur coats–Meatloaf stars in it :P !



  31. 231

    Obviously PETA.. Animals are being tortured, what do people who wear fur have to lose? All this cruelty is SO unneccesary!



  32. 232

    PETA are a bunch of fugly losers who can't get laid. They don't care about protecting animals - they care about self-promotion and ragging on public figures. Pity they don't devote their time and energy to things that really matter - like preventing domestic abuse, or crimes against people. Maybe these idiots should donote all of their time and resources to the Innocence Project, and help save the lives of people wrongly condemned.



  33. 233

    PETA all way!



  34. 234

    The MAIN question is…Where did Kelis get the money to buy that fur coat?? LOL!



  35. 235

    Go Kelis!!! Being a child who grew up on a Cattle farm, I'll tell you right now, wear fur, eat meat, and be merry. Screw PETA…



  36. 236

    Re: noellenielsen

    I concur! PETA are a bunch of fuckin' hypocrites.

    Re: starvin marvin

    You're a moron. Go to noellenielsen's link. PETA are nothing more than a massive stain on the entire animal welfare movement. They're extremist and they use tacky ad campaigns with cognitively challenged celebrities/sublebrities to try and whitewash their horrendous animal welfare record.

    If you fall for their spin, then someone should turn you into a stole. Same with the rest of the 'tards on here who can't do basic research and fall for PETA's rhetoric.

    I care about animal welfare which is why PETA need to get the fuck out of this important cause.



  37. 237

    Dear PETA,
    Shut the fuck up. People only know who you are because going veggie and no fur is trendy right now.



  38. 238

    Oh Miss Kelis, you should be happy that Chris Brown doesn't want to wear your skin and weave. He'd skin you alive a la Hannibal, but lucky for you, your are in the bottom of the 'talent' food chain! You are an ugly monster!



  39. 239

    GO PETA!!! Hate kelis. Animals should b left alone… Everybody who wears fur should die themselves.



  40. 240

    I don't agree with wearing fur, but I DO agree with many other posters on here that PETA is very hypocritical. They don't believe animals should be kept as pets, but they also do not believe in letting them wander around homeless. So where does that leave all the cats and dogs that need homes? PETA kills them. I don't understand how living in a home with loving and caring owners could be worse for a cat or dog than death. If they truly loved animals as much as they claim to, PETA wouldn't see it either. I guess the bottom line is if you care about animals, you would not support anything that unnecessarily harms them or ends their lives.



  41. 241

    It doesn't say anywhere that is was a NASTY message! Perez, you're so full of it! Kelis only said she got a 'personalized' letter, that's it and she felt the need to respond. FFS people, read the damn response…



  42. 242

    Re: BUTCH8844 – You're right, lets put them in foster care or dump them into garbage cans, or microwave them, or smash in their skulls and bury them in the backyard instead. Maybe a nice poison cocktail in the bottle? That's MUCH better! Do I totally agree that it has gotten out of control and should not be taken so lightly as a form of birth control? Of course, but if I had the choice on what I want these women to do, I choose the right to abortion instead of the other vile things woman are doing with these babies. Including foster care. But this is what happens in a country when given too much "choice" as people on here have said Kelis should have the right to. America is going to hell in a handbasket. It's discusting.



  43. 243

    kelis is a no talent ass-clown. PETA ALL THE WAY



  44. 244

    I vote PETA. They were very polite in their letter, not "nasty"



  45. 245

    uh duh??? Anyone that wears fur should be mauled alive by tigers…Go Peta!



  46. 246

    Fuck this has-been animal killing bitch



  47. 247

    PETA is a joke. They take any opportunity they can to whore themselves out to the media.



  48. 248

    Kelis is a disgusting human being. She is the classic example of an ignorant black person.



  49. 249

    I am proud to be a vegan! I just don't think it's fair… If we could cut em up, eat em, and wear em WHY CAN'T WE HAVE SEX WITH THEM? I mean seriously think about this it's not fair… I refuse to participate in any of these acts until we are allowed the freedom of interspecial relationships… Who's with me?



  50. 250

    I'm with Kelis, we have the right to wear whatever we want…even if it's fur. PETA is full of sh*t anyway, because they kill animals as well.



  51. 251

    Team Kelis! The letter isn't nasty, but who gives a crap if "countless celebrities, like Charlize Theron, Khloe Kardashian, Nia Long, Kid Sister, Pink, and Michelle Obama, in publicly swearing off fur." It's her own choice, and I loved her letter to them!



  52. 252

    PETA OF COURSE!!!

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    253

    Spin. Nice spin, but spin. Where's the splashing red paint?



  54. 254

    go peta, fur sucks and kelis is so selfish for wearing it!



  55. 255

    Re: contrarianchick – your body NEEDS meat. I tried being a vegetarian but it made me so tired I started eating meat again. I really do love animals, and you are probably right, but wearing fur is completely unnecessary if you don't live in alaska or whatever. it's just because people think it's "pretty" (it's dang ugly though). eating meat is NOT unneccessary, our body really needs it for strength and honestly, tofu and quorn really don't give as much energy as a steak.



  56. 256

    The problem is, that if you say you cannot wear fur, then you also have to not wear leather or eat meat. I do not wear fur and I am a vegetarian. But my dogs eat meat, and I wear leather. So, although I support animal welfare and condemn animal cruelty, it is a tough call to make. However, I think on this one, PETA sent Kelis a letter just asking her to take a look at a video in order to make an informed choice. However, if there is anyone that should have an issue with PETA, it is Beyonce, after what they did to her….it was just wrong and they owe her an apology.



  57. 257

    I don't think fur is a good look whether real or fake, I mean do you really want to look like a mink or whatever the dead animal of your choice is? However, I think PETA are a bunch of extreme dick heads. Fuck PETA let people decide what they want to wear, I don't agree with it but hey I don't agree with religion either….. Will I get a letter for that?



  58. 258

    Kelis made it seem like they were really nasty in their letter…they weren't at all. Kelis needs to go away!



  59. 259

    Go Kelis! I mean…I love teh animalz, but PETA just goes tooooo far sometimes…Back off.



  60. 260

    Re: peteypie – harassment? "Dear Kelis, I hope that this finds you well."? please



  61. 261

    Go PETA



  62. 262

    BITCH IS CRYING POOR FROM NAS NOT PAYING? HELL SELL SOME OF YOUR BLING BITCH OR STOP CRYING POOR..



  63. 263

    Peta had no business sending emails or there buddys or there what evers or people posing as peta either.Its isnt right that Peta threatens or think its right to tell people about eating or wearing or using there product or there followers. i have seen on the net where the fur haters have thrown paints and such and those that do these things is a crime and should be thrown in jail and sued to the upmost it isnt right.back in the day people that killed there animals they ate the meat and used every inch of the corpse and yes the leathers and furs so the people could live and if it wasnt for your fore fathers trying to survive your asses wouldnt be alive today they had to survive. so every since Adam and Eve we have been eating meat and using all the goods to survive on . other words only me and me alone will tell me whay i can eat and a big juicy steak meduim well and a baked potatoe sounds good. and honey where what ever you want and dont let anyone tell you different you are you



  64. 264

    Re: sweetestfairy – I am not trying to sound mean and yes there is bad ways of killing animals just for fur but if other parts are being used like meat to eat ok.



  65. 265

    Re: QuinneVengeance – omg all u fucking idiots that think that PETA needs to find sumthin better 2 do than warn celebrities about the industry they are contributing to need to shut the fuck up.

    u ignorant cold hearted assholes! — who the hell would NOT care about animals dieing because humans want to wear their fur??

    what the fuck kind of world are we living in?



  66. 266

    Kelis is a GHETTO TRASH ho…ANIMAL RIGHTS before the right of ghetto thugs!



  67. 267

    Do NOT start your replies with "I love animals and all BUT I support Kelis"…NO!!! anyone who supports wearing fur does NOTTTTTTTTT love animals. You are a MONSTER if you support the fur industry in any way. Animals are glorious, amazing loving human beings with far more compassion than most people have. To support Kelis is saying you are essentially in the same boat as a serial killer…because only serial killers have the atributes to harm animals in the manner that the fur industry does- and anyone who purchases fur is not only supporting that DIGUSTING industry but applauding it. I hope all you supporting Kelis can sleep well knowing you support the cruel, vile, HATEFUL treatment of animals living their own lives. Kelis you are yesterdays news. Go make a sex tape before you go back on welfare.



  68. 268

    PETA are lying bullshit. I so that episode of Penn & Teller where they talked about PETA and that they kill animals, themselves. Stupid PETA! I hope Kelis stop wearing fur, but i hope she does it in her own free will, and not because of PETA.



  69. 269

    Whichever side you are on with the whole fur vs faux debate you can't call that a nasty letter.



  70. 270

    I'm not the biggest fan of PETA but I think we all KNOW that Kelis is a damn fool. Can you believe she actually compared Ingrid Newkirk's need for Insulin (for her DIABETES) to her precious FUR COATS? She's so ignorant, she's like a step away from dropping dead.
